The ECP, in its unanimous verdict today, said it has found that the PTI received prohibited funding from foreign nationals and companies.
Berating the PTI in his hard-hitting press conference following the judgment, Khaqan Abbasi said that Imran Khan received funding worth Rs1.5 billion illegally.
Those who gave funds to Imran Khan include Indian citizens, he added.
“If the amount was meant for welfare then how Rs550 million were transferred into the accounts of the political party,” he asked the PTI leader.
The whole conspiracy stands exposed before the masses as the funds were received by the PTI from foreign nationals and companies to do politics in Pakistan, the PML-N leader said, adding “the law will take its course on the matter.”
On the other hand, PTI leader Farrukh Habib, after a damning verdict by the ECP, said that foreign funding was not proved against the party.
The verdict disappointed those who were pushing the narrative of foreign funding against the PTI, said Farrukh Habib. He maintained that they were of the view that it was a case of prohibited funding but not of foreign funding.
